To the villagers here, there is no doubt what happened in an American airstrike on Aug. 22: More than 90 civilians, the majority of them women and
children, were killed.
An Afghan woman and her daughter, in Azizabad a day after the Aug. 22 airstrike, mourned the death of a relative. The Afghan government, human rights
and intelligence officials, independent witnesses and a U.N. investigation back up their account, pointing to dozens of freshly dug graves, lists of
the dead, and cellphone videos and other images showing bodies of women and children laid out in the village mosque.
